Since we are social beings, we partner with different type of organizations and individuals to achieve a common goal. Without conflict of interests, in a transparent and honest way.
NGO PartnershipABSWP started working as a project based organization. Over the time, we’ve created a ‘on field’ local NGO to take over those projects and tasks from a local perspective. This NGO, AIFWP, has become now our number one partner, and is where we focus all our strengths.
We believe local NGO’s have the benefit of local knowledge and presence. Working together we combine our strengths.
The sum of the whole partnership can be greater than the sum of the parts.
The benefits of this partnership are clear. Improving local ownership, sustainability, mutual exchange of ideas and resources, and effectiveness of the work on both sides. Results are managed and controlled over performance.
Corporate PartnershipThe world demands Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
We are all responsible for our actions, and that includes the private sector.
Corporations have the potential, capital and efficiency to have an impact in a positive way. Many corporations are willing to be more responsible, but sometimes they lack the knowledge, training or dedication needed to carry development programs.
The goal is clear, bring business and NGO’s close together in order to promote development.
The benefits for the corporations are clear: increase image and credibility, financial sustainability and long term profitability.
Having better CSR policies, will transform the corporation from a ‘charitable donation’ approach to a ‘community and economic development’ approach.
The NGO benefits are evident as well, having access to more streams of founding.
A clear win-win situation.
Government PartnershipThe benefits for the partnership between government and NGO’s are evident. We complement each other.
Governments reduce cost, receive specialized services and take advantage of the community development. NGO’s gain resources and improve the networking with policymakers.
The Edo State Government has made available to us 400 hectares of land in the Ehor Forest Reserve for the ‘Trees for Peace’ project.
